This year has definitely been the year of the influencer with fashion bloggers leading the stakes with high profile brand collaborations and gorgeous #OOTDs that have us spending way more than we should be
Despite what American Vogue seems to think, fashion bloggers are killing it right now. Mixing their distinctive personal style, social media skills and creative imagery and writing, you can’t help but find fashion’s finest influencers filling your Instagram feed via the explore page or your very own following list. We’ve curated a fresh and diverse round up of the best fashion bloggers from the UK and overseas to follow on Instagram to give you some inspiration for the AW16 season…
1. Hands of Style
Remi Afolabi, the creative force behind Hands of Style, is best known for her unique way of elevating a causal outfit into something special due to her use of accessories, key cuts and subtle but strong details such as differing textures and the art of the shirt tuck. Utilising brands that we all know and love such as Missguided and Mango but also showcasing brands that flit under the radar, we can’t get enough of how Remi makes the accessible look so damn good. We’re also in awe of Remi’s style of writing which is just as good as her imagery and personal style – a rare find in the blogging world.

2. Kaity Modern
Hailing all the way from Australia, Kaitlin Ham is the fashion blogger behind Modern Legacy and the reigning queen of minimalism on Instagram. As expected from a minimalist fan, Kaity has a restricted palette of black, white, grey and camel but that doesn’t make her outfits on Instagram any less lust-worthy. Long lines, drapey fits and gorgeous footwear are her forte – her collection of shoes that she artistically styles in her Instagram flat lays span from Gucci loafers to Stella McCartney mules. Envy inducing indeed.

3. The Grey Layers
When it comes down to a perfectly curated Instagram feed, fashion bloggers have it down to a T and Jeanne Grey, the US based blogger behind The Grey Layers, is definitely at the forefront. Focusing primarily on fashion but with touches of beauty and travel, Jeanne’s love for skin flashing silk separates, chunky knits, off the shoulder tops and denim will have you scrolling through her feed endlessly. We love how effortless her outfits look, plus she rocks grey hair like no other.

4. Kirsten Anderton
Kirsten Anderton is one of those fashion bloggers where the saying ‘simplicity is key’ most definitely applies. With a light and muted Instagram feed that mirrors her blog, The Faddist, Kirsten styles basic pieces such as a classic white shirt, denim and lightweight outerwear with detailed pieces for outfits that are perfect for Melbourne weather where she is based. Yet another blogger that boasts a small range of colours in her wardrobe, Kirsten is the one to follow for understated outfit inspo.

5. Rachel Tee Tyler
Rachel Tee Tyler is one of those Instagram babes that can pull any style off but what we love most about her is her sports-luxe looks. It’s not often you see fashion bloggers uploading posts of themselves killing it in hoodies, tracksuits and loose tees, but Rachel’s way of mixing it with jewellery and feminine separates makes it work. She also peppers her feed with contrasting outfits and to die for bikini shots that look so good, they’ll motivate you to head straight to the gym.

Mixing high street and premium items with high end accessories and separates, textured and oversized fits are what envelops Monikh’s petite frame. Her Insta feed is a mix of her distinctive ootds, her latest purchases and shots of her holidays to the most stunning corners of the world.
